Passion & Photography

I’m Jakob Nylund. I’m 27 and I like taking pictures. Sometimes I create typefaces but it has been a while now since I did one. During the day I work as a senior Art Director at North Kingdom in Stockholm. I like jazz, but I listen to a lot of things really. I’ve lived in London, Sydney and Stockholm. One day I wanna live in New York, if only for a short while.

Casual branding

Eum in movet mucius dicunt denique gubergren nam, sea ei soluta causae eripuit, viris dissentiunt vel id. Putent assentior mel eu. An eum paulo incorrupte efficiendi, eleifend contentiones no his, mel ea alii cetero.

An doctus facilis repudiare nam. Labore maiestatis eu eos, no sea possit vocent appellantur. Ut adhuc viderer sapientem eos, pri ea impedit accumsan, omnes soluta consulatu ea mel. Cum id augue deleniti, in exerci quaerendum omittantur qui, quo brute liber postea et. Id pri ferri insolens. Nec ei decore vulputate. Mea at nonumy scriptorem deterruisset.

Branding challenge

In a professional context it often happens that private or corporate clients corder a publication to be made and presented with the actual content still not being ready. Think of a news blog that’s filled with content hourly on the day of going live. However, reviewers tend to be distracted by comprehensible content, say, a random text copied from a newspaper or the internet. The are likely to focus on the text, disregarding the layout and its elements. Besides, random text risks to be unintendedly humorous or offensive, an unacceptable risk in corporate environments. Lorem ipsum and its many variants have been employed since the early 1960ies, and quite likely since the sixteenth century.

Cicero famously orated against his political opponent Lucius Sergius Catilina. Occasionally the first Oration against Catiline is taken for type specimens: Quo usque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra? Quam diu etiam furor iste tuus nos eludet? (How long, O Catiline, will you abuse our patience? And for how long will that madness of yours mock us?)

In 1985 Aldus Corporation launched its first desktop publishing program Aldus PageMaker for Apple Macintosh computers, released in 1987 for PCs running Windows 1.0. Both contained the variant lorem ipsum most common today. Laura Perry, then art director with Aldus, modified prior versions of Lorem Ipsum text from typographical specimens; in the 1960s and 1970s it appeared often in lettering catalogs by Letraset. Anecdotal evidence has it that Letraset used Lorem ipsum already from 1970 onwards, eg. for grids (page layouts) for ad agencies. Many early desktop publishing programs, eg. Adobe PageMaker, used it to create templates.
